Waste of money.
Use these,
hotukdeals.com/ite…820
and on the 6th charge (or less!) you are into profit, just like using disposables, without any of the drawbacks of standard rechargeables

Spot on, agree 100%. Disposeables are dead to me.

Does anyone know of any tests on batteries, everyone seems to be putting +, ultra or super in front, but what are they like in real world applications i.e. camera, torch etc. I'm currently testing some NiMH stay charged batteries but I like to keep a few of these about for remotes and things.

I prefer rechargeable as well but these have their place for toys,remotes etc which have low drain and you do not wish commit rechargeables. So a statement like a waste of money is totally subjective (cost of a charger, electricity !)
BTW,how do you spend all that profit you make and I do hope you are declaring it to Mr Darling?

For the most part I use recahargables. However rechargable are only 1.2v as opposed to 1.5v of disposable batterys. This dosent appear to be a problem for most things but I have found the occasional device that wont work with recharagables so need to use disposables. Also as someone else has pointed out devices that have a low drain dont benefit much because of the natural discharge of rechargables (not so much of a problem with the newer hybrid batteries).

If you are buying disposables at a dozen a time... you NEED rechargeables.

Costs of rechargeables are so low now, the "investment" involved is pretty small, while the "return" is pretty high. I wish I could buy everything else as a one-off, pay just 5 times the initial price, then use it up repeatedly for years to come, without ever paying for another again other than a tiny fraction to recharge it! Imagine a petrol tank like that!

Mr Darling has already had his cut of what I am spending, that's why I want to spend less on what I have to spend it on, so there is more for what I WANT to spend it on.
